The strong points of this hotel are its location and staff. I stayed at this hotel between Sep 23 and 27, 2014. The hotel is accessible from Ataturk airport using public transportation. Once you leave customs are, turn right and walk following the sign “Metro”. The Metro “Havalimani” station is at the concourse level of the airport. You will need... More

Close to many attractions on the European side and easy access to public transportation. We chose the room at the top that has a great view to the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. The breakfast buffet was quite OK. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Hotels in the very heart of a city fall into two categories: they are either very luxurious, grand, spacious, corporate and consequently phenomenally expensive, or they are small, individual, quirky and privately owned. If you have come to Istanbul to see the sights and stay in the old town, this is the place for you. It is in what used... More

This hotel is in a great location just 300m walk from the Blue Mosque. We paid Euro 90 a night for a 2 night stay which is one of the cheaper prices in the area. However, it is a budget hotel, so unless you get one of the balcony rooms, they are very cramped, particularly if you have 2 suitcases.... More

The Lamp Hotel is perfectly located for touring the Old Town section of Istanbul. My room had an unobstructed view of the Blue Mosque, located less than a block away! My room also had air conditioning, flat screen TV, an in-room refrigerator, and a very comfortable bed. I found Mehmet, the owner/manager, to be very helpful and pleasant to me.... More

Me and my wife looked at loads hotels in Istanbul and most just didn't fit our budget as they were extremely overpriced trying to find a room close to the blue mosque. We paid roughly 55 Euros per night and booked online prior to flying out there. The hotel is situated around 5 mins away from the amazing blue mosque... More

We spent nine nights at the Lamp Hotel and found it to be exactly what we needed. It is just minutes from the Sultanahmet tram stop and a 5 minute walk to the Topkapi Palace, Haghia Sophia and the Blue Mosque. The rooms are small, but quiet and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is generous with made-to-order omelettes and in the... More
